It can be tough to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you're as busy as I am. To make my goals easier to achieve, I do most of my shopping for health-related merchandise at Sam's Club. Not only am I saving money by buying things in bulk (because I'm feeding 6 kids and 2 work-at-home parents), but I know that I can fill my medicine cabinet and my fridge with the tools we need to make our whole bodies healthy.

I headed to my local Sam's Club this week for our monthly haul, and we had plenty of things that I needed to be sure we picked up. It took two full carts and the back of my van (with seats pulled out) to get all that we needed for our health, beauty, and grocery needs. In addition to all of our supplements and OTC meds (we've had a few colds and flus to deal with), I was able to snag some of my favorite fresh goods, including bagged spinach! This versatile ingredient is great for quick, weeknight meals, and it happens to be the Sam's Club online magazine Healthy Living Made Simple super food for July and August!

If you've ever felt a bit awkward trying to find new ways to use spinach, you are not alone. I really limited myself to salads when I first started eating it. But now, I'm getting bolder in my recipe choices, and find that simple dishes with great flavors don't have to take much time at all. In fact, this 10-minute side dish is a family favorite and incorporates the Healthy Living Made Simple superfood spinach quite easily! Check it out:

One of my favorite healthy sides that my family enjoys year-round is this quick-to-make wilted greens recipe, using fresh spinach I purchase from Sam's Club!

To make this recipe, you'll only need a few simple ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, whole
  • 1 small white onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste

Begin by heating your skillet or saute pan on medium high heat. Add the oil, then the garlic.

 Once the garlic starts to sizzle, toss in the onions.

Allow the onions to cook by constantly stirring. Don't let them get too brown!

When the onions have become slightly softened, toss in the spinach. Use a pair of tongs to toss the spinach around in the pan continually. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

The spinach will start to shrink and turn dark (or "wilt"). Before it gets too mushy, take it from the pan and serve immediately.  I like to serve it on the side of a nice chicken breast or pork tenderloin.

Sounds pretty simple, doesn't it? This recipe is just one of the many dishes I've been able to get on the table in minutes, thanks to a stocked fridge from Sam's Club.

Sam's Club's Healthy Living Made Simple Magazine is an online hub of information for all of your health and wellness initiatives. I could spend hours browsing the articles, getting ideas for my own family, and feeling like some of my more difficult goals (like eating better) are actually achievable.

But the magazine is just one way Sam's Club is making it easy to have a holistic approach to health. In fact, they make it pretty simple for their members to get a number of screenings on the second Saturday of each month. And these health screenings are free for members! (The next one is August 13th.) It's just one of the ways they are quickly becoming the destination for health and wellness for my family.  You can also count on them to provide your prescriptions, eyeglasses and eye exams, OTC meds, hearing checks, and -- of course -- all of the great healthy produce and snacks we currently buy.

What healthy ways can you think of to use superfoods like spinach?
